Compared to the photos from the E410 and E510, the E420 does not look that great Besides not being as sharp, the colors are not in my opinion as good. I am speaking of the photos posted on dcresource. The photos I am referring to are as you look at the E420 gallery #5(art museum), #8(round church) and #9(library with flag). I like the new features on the E420 and I would buy the 14-54 lens instead of the 14-42 lens. The E510 photos are with the 14-54 lens. Hopefully, someone can ease my concerns regarding the IQ of the E420.

Thanks,

My concerns about the E420 IQ are disappearing. I just saw a direct comparison on dpreview's Olympus SLR forum between the E3 and the E520. I then went to the E3 review here at dcresource and I noticed that two of the three pictures referred to in the original post "E420 IQ Concerns" were of the same color as the E410 and E510, maybe a white balance difference. Not concerned that the E3 does not look as good as the other E series galleries as I know it is not inferior to them.

Thanks,

I've never tried it, but I am sure the E-420 takes great pictures. I can say more about the lens, which is an excellent selection. Much better than the kit lens in most respects.

Yes, I now think the E420 will be good and therefore the E520 the one I am actually interested in will be good also.
